Big feet

Postby Fohls » Tue, 26 Jul 2005 3:18 pm

Anyone know where I can get decent men's shoes for a reasonable price? I need around a UK 11-11.5 (US 12, Euro 46)?

Everbest is the name of a Shoe Boutique here.. you may find one of this at Wisma Atria.. but don't know if they actually do have this size....anyway whats wrong with St Michaels? I believe they carry such sizes and besides they have good quality stuff too.

Cheers

Missy's suggestion is good, Royal Sporting House: Rockports. If that store doesn't carry your size, they will be kind enough to call around to their other outlets to locate a large size. Good Luck--I have a 14 yr. old boy with the same problem--BIG feet. :wink:

We wish you luck, I doubt your boss wants you coming into work barefoot! I'm sure you wouldn't mind, though. :wink:

Really which outlet? The one I went into on Saturday laughed at me, as did pretty much every place i tried... I am thouroughly depressed :-( Capital of consumerism but not for people with feet larger than a size 10 (uk)... I got looked at like a freak!! Surely I'm not the only person in Singapore with UK 11s? There must be a fair percentage of people especially Expats that have larger feet. The only places I found that did carry larger shoes were ugly as sin, old fashioned, super over priced, or just plain uncomfortable...

Seriously thinking about setting up a +UK11 size shoe shop exclusive for men and women with bigger feet, import them from UK and US, could make a killing!!
